I sold it the day after we broke the record and have never had another one since

Top Hollywood director Steven Spielberg reportedly has a net worth of more than $3 billion. No wonder, he can easily afford a luxury 86 metre superyacht!

Isn’t it nonsense if Captain Jack Sparrow wouldn’t have his own vessel to sail the seas? Johnny Depp owned a classic superyacht with a length of 47 meters. The name of the yacht is “Vajoliroja” and comes from a combination of names in the Depp family: “Va” for Vanessa Paradis his girlfriend, “jo” for Johnny’s own name, “liro” after Depp’s daughter Lily Rose, and “ja” for Depp’s son Jack. It was sold it for about $27 million in late 2015 or early 2016. The new owner later sold it to J.K. Rowling (the author of Harry Potter), who renamed it Amphitrite and made it available for purchase and charter. Could Little Harry even dream of such accommodation when he was living in the cupboard under the stairs?
